I've learned a foreign language: WIP, WIM, FO, UFO, DH, DD, DS, DIL, SIL, MIL, FIL. I know what PhotoBucket is, I've learned about blogging and even have a blog of my own now! The list is endless! It just goes on and on and on and on! I just learned that at the auction a magic yarn ball with a theme is a ball of yarn made up of similar bits and scraps all tied together and then hand-wound into a ball. There's another kind of magic ball which is a ball or skein of yarn, hand-wound, with small treasures like stickers, a small interesting rock, a seashell, and other goodies wrapped into the ball. We can call this a "magic treasures ball". I like this one best! I wonder if you could put a diamond ring in it!
But there's one thing missing: WHEN IS NAP TIME?

We've been pulling pranks on each other, sneaking off across the lake to see the boys, having all night sing-a-longs (some campers really complain about that???). We've had 99 bottles of coke on the wall and we took 'em all down. I'm tired right now and it's lights out at camp, so to be continued...
Notions and stuff from me to Donna:
Annie's Attic Crochet on the Double; Split-Lock Stitch Count Markers; Thergonomic Hand-Aids; Flexible Cro-Hook H & I; 14" Afghan Hooks Sizes H & I; Crocheted heart sachet w/potpourri; a little wind chime; Hook Size Place Holders; G, H, I Hooks, Clover Soft Touch G, H, I Hooks; kids scissors for traveling; French Vanilla Fragrance Sachet.
NOT SHOWN IN THE PICTURE PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN DISPOSED OF: Ghiardelli Dark Chocolate Squares and Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolates...Hmm, wonder where they went to!
Goodies from Donna to Me, Yum Yum! I did take the picture before scarfing down the mini-cookies! (Sheep and baby lamb from my collection; they insisted on being in the picture!)
More from Donna to me: Ribbons and silk flowers for embellishing whatever I want to embellish! Hopefully, will be picturing something soon with some of these embellishments.
Notions from Donna to Me
There's tape measures, scissors, hooks, yarn needles
Smaller sheep is retractable tape measure (which I have been wanting for awhile)
Little blue boxes can hold anything! They did contain Donna's Migraine Headache Rx!
Cool, huh? I'm still trying to decide what I want to keep in them. May have to have her save more for me!
(Again, my mama sheep with her baby wanted to be with the new sheep)

I have been having a wonderful time getting various notions together for my partner, Donna, and she says she's having a ball with it, too. What we do is fill out an information sheet and let our swap partner know the notions that we would like to have, plus any kind of treats. Man, that girl recently bought the MOTHERLODE of yarn, patterns, crochet and knitting stuff and who knows what else at a garage sale for $20! (Hee Hee! I think I'm gonna get some of that stuff...well I know I am...she already told me she threw in some spools of ribbon for me...ribbon was on my list.)
Tomorrow I plan to sign up for the summer round of Secret Pals. I can't wait and hope I get in...there's a limit to the number of participants...1st come, 1st serve, I think. I've got to set up an anonymous email account so I'll be able to email my partner!
So much to do and just not enough time! I don't know when I'll get any crocheting done!
Oh, I also signed up for the doily swap!

I crocheted it for my friend of over 30 years for her new baby granddaughter. My friend has 2 daughters and I had crocheted new baby sweaters for both the girls when they were born back in the 70s. Delani is the new daughter of my friend's younger daughter. Oh, the hat turned out to be too small. Bummer.....
